You gave two that were not in your range and one that the boat was 5' shorter than your target, so I don't understand how you say you found a few within the budget. One boat you linked to was $699,000. How is that in a $250,000-$500,000 budget? One question about your budget. Is that purchase price only or including any work that has to be done to get the boat where it's desired? Generally the cost of a purchase of an older boat doesn't end with the purchase price.
